When Mario and Martino Prada founded Prada in 1913, their initial idea was to manufacture leather handbags and trunks, and import goods from England. As the years went by, the business was passed on to Mario's daughter, Luisa, who worked as the head of Prada, and steered the brand to the top of the fashion pyramid. In 1971, Miuccia Prada (Luisa’s daughter) joined the company, and in 1985 she unveiled a line of unlabeled, black, nylon handbags, which were instantly snapped-up by fashionistas around the world.
